Hello,

Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Well, Trichomoniasis is an infection from a parasite, which spread primarily through sexual intercourse, this is contagious but curable.

Unlike most other STDs trichomonas organism can survive outside body in a damp environment for quite some time. But even then the chances of transmission are very low. One can get trichomonas from these routes too-

-bodily fluids
-contaminated bedding
-damp towels
-sheets
-toilet seats
-soiled towels, baths, and jacuzzis.

Sharing gym towel, may be route for transmission of trichomonas, as towel provides damp environment for parasite to remain alive.

Please check this link-

This infection, is easily cured with single dose of prescription antibiotic medication (either metronidazole or tinidazole).

Hope this helped
